IonCube Loader is a software instrument, which is necessary to run files that are protected with ionCube PHP Encoder. The aforementioned is an app used to make PHP code human unreadable, in order to protect it from reverse engineering and unauthorized use. Various script-driven applications, especially message boards, content management systems and electronic commerce solutions are encrypted with ionCube PHP Encoder, so if you obtain a script and you find that ionCube is on the list of website hosting environment prerequisites, you need to make sure that your web hosting server has the tool pre-installed. Although it is not that hard to install it if you have your own server, it is almost impossible to do that on a shared web hosting server for the reason that the PHP environment should be precompiled and all of the clients on the server will be affected.

IonCube in Cloud Web Hosting

IonCube Loader is present on all web servers that are a part of our cloud web hosting platform, which means that regardless of the cloud web hosting that you pick during the signup process, you can activate it from your Hepsia Control Panel. This process is as simple as clicking an On/Off button inside the Advanced section, so even if this will be your first website hosting account ever, you won't have to do anything complicated. The exact same section enables you to pick the PHP release for your account (4, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 7.0, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 8.0, 8.1, 8.2), which means that in case you choose to move to another version, you only need to activate ionCube Loader for it too. Since our platform is very flexible, you may even set another PHP version and a different status of ionCube by using a php.ini file in each domain folder. In case this is something you need to do but you do not have much experience, the 24/7 tech support team will be able to assist you very quickly.
